this column. in terms of republican politics, and speak for that if you can, that they know that george w bush is basically identified completely with the iraq war. is the republican party that can speak for it, are they basically war averse now? >> i think they would hesitate to say, i'm a spokesperson for the republican party, but, yeah, i heard you say wariness. i think that's the better term. chris: wary rather than weary. >> wary rather than weary, republicans and people in had general are in favor of taking the steps that are essential, the quick strike. chris: are there such things that -- >> i was told that this was going to be a three-week exercise and here we are 10 years later talking about the anniversary. the republicans have to be extremely careful. i thought peggy's article was fantastic. i wish i had written it. she made the point that the enterias are squander -- republicans have squandered trust. the war in iraq did damage the republican party for the longer term i think. chris: you interviewed ahmadinejad last september before the last presidential. he seemed unimpressed wit

attacked president bush mercilessly at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> jon: first of all, bush was the worst president since herbert hoover. [cheers and applause] and second -- -- second, you (bleep) hated him. haaaated him. hated. and third blocking a secretary of defense nominee that has nothing to do with your current rediscovered moral outrage at american deaths overseas whilst copping to maybe a little payback is the antithesis of your campaign slogan so pardon me, sir, but perhaps it needs an update. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome back. as you know, america is like a boy band, yes. [ laughter ] that is the premises we are asserting. each of our 50 state has a distinct personality. we've got the cute one. [ laughter ] we've got the rebel, rides a harley with no helmet.

life. we're going to have to rob you on that because bush spent all your money on the iraq war. sorry, sorry we don't have enough money. by the way we'd love to start a war with iron. that could cost a couple trillion dollars. later, we'll rob you even more and say sorry we just don't have any money. by the way yes, it was started by bush and the republicans and yes, a lot of democrats voted for it, because as usual, it doesn't matter who wins the election, you get the right wing policy, no matter what. all right let me bring in experts. catherine lutz is part of the good folks who did that project that we just gave you the stats from, co director of the cost of war project and michael from rolling stone and our own notebook here on current. catherine, let me start with you. so a lot of people will look at those clips and say really, $2.2 trillion. where did you get those numbers from? >> well, we had a team of 29 people working on the in connection and our economists basically added up things that don't normally get noticed including things like of course the war appropriations, but
shows former florida governor jeb bush losing in a 2016 matchup with hillary clinton in his home state. hillary beating jeb in florida. that's amazing. and there's more. marco rubio, the republican's break-out star of the year, loses to hillary, too. he's trailing by 11 points. both would get pounced on their home turf. this is the political fallout. it rubs off on their candidates. joining me now is ed rendell, former pennsylvania governor, and susan milligan, thank you both for your time. >> absolutely. >> my pleasure. >> ed, hillary clinton beats both jeb bush and marco rubio in their home state? is it panic time for the republicans? >> sure. because she just didn't beat him in a poll last month. she beat him by two or three points. now she's beating him by 11 points. and these are the two florida superstars. and worse, marco rubio has fallen down to 21. that's happened in a short period of time. they both waffled on path to citizenship and, again, it's part of the gun stuff and part of the whole negativity of the republican party and this party's go the to understand, it's not the
around? politically? >> it's going to be tough. i think jeb bush has carved out his own segment, especially with education, but there's always the bush name. that's good and bad, but they've been a bush in the white house forever, there's a lot of people that don't remember a republican president but george bush. >> that may not be a positive. thank you, chip. you can't bring your brother to the convention with you, you have problems. thank you, mr. mayor for coming on again. >>> up next, the president is in the middle east. he seems to be winning over many skeptical israelis especially the young who are not skeptical. that could be good things for the president. don't you think? this is a big, positive trip for him. this is "hardball," the place for politics. g, waiting... feel like you're growing older... waiting to look younger? don't wait.

george w. bush. that is the scary thing. we need to help israel establish a second most strategic alliance with egypt. obama does not have the ability. >> sean: jordan may not be far behind and syria is going the muslim brotherhood. >> he was most tossed out president in american-israel relations and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syr
. bush would not meet with arafat in the white house because he knew how that devastated friends and encouraged our enemies. you remember even in the gulags in the soviet union when reagan said evil empire about soviet union, they applauded. it gave them strength. it helped themsh forward. this president doesn't get it. he was in the gulag and when they found out a president used those two words, it made incredible encouragement. >> sean: same speech about alexander s., and ambassador bolton, good to see you. king of jordan said we're making a big mistake by supporting the muslim brotherhood. before i ask you a question. i want to take it back to barack obama's apology tour and ask you if this was effective. let's roll that tape. >> america like every other nation has made mistakes and has it's flaws. in america there is a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times when america has shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive. 9/11 was an
were asked about their opinions of u.s. presidency george to view bush fell to the low of coal% but obama was elected and approval was 92% was that a population of haters? no. they to make discriminating judgments on the basis of how they assess the new leader of the same country so western europeans were unhappy with the leader they saw as an inarticulate proponent of unilateral action and who had a swagger in his step and not interested in their opinion and when the president left office in the new president seemed to be very good at articulating why it was in u.s. interest to be a multi a latterly, seek cooperation with other countries and embody a set of ideals about america as the united states is a land of opportunity all of a sudden it was very popular so there is not the deep and underlying consistent hatred of united states but it is rare. but foreigners can make distinguishing judgments of different aspects and behave accordingly. >>host: why should we care which germans think? when is the last time we were asked what we thought of angela merkle? >>guest: many in germ
in the newscast, we'll highlight this weekend's cpack convention animated sarah palin and jeb bush with harsh words for the republican party. >>> postal workers across san francisco this morning protesting their boss's decision to cut services. the forum starting with the postmaster's general decisions called into question. christie joins us live with all the details. christie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, jon. those protesters just wrapped up 15, 20 minutes ago. they really wanted to send a strong message to u.s. postmaster in san francisco about cuts to service and selling properties. we had a chance to speak with patrick donahue. they have lost 70% of mail volume and can't sit back and do nothing. they gathered outside where he's speaking at a four-day convention about the mailing industry. this as the postal service with huge deficits, closing centers and eyeing the day when it stops saturday service until congress steps in. this is dismantling the postal service as we know it. he says the postal service really needs to keep up with technology. >> the postal service the
of these writings will be available. it has a forward by former first lady, laura bush. >> we must talk a little about st. petersburg and her incredible journey back to meet her husband. can you tell was important about that story? >> in st. petersburg, and the years were difficult areas it is cold, it is forbidding. there are not a lot of other women there. most of the diplomatic biased to not travel with her husband when they get sent there. i have a baby girl, louisa catherine adams, and the child dies after about a year. that really devastates her mother. it is very painful. john quincy is also very much torn apart by the death. the war of 1812 has broken out here. he is sent to negotiated treaty and leaves louisa with her youngest son, charles francis, in st. petersburg. when peace is resolved and he is sure he will be returning home or sent to london, he asks her to join him. she makes this arduous journey from st. petersburg in the winter to paris with a son who is only seven of the time. and a couple of servings that she only met that day. she does not know she can trust them. as she is
talking to president bush 41 to ask him is he worried about the future of the republican party. he said look in 1992 after he lost, it took a while for republicans to get their footing but they did after two or three years. they come back in 1994, win big time. same thing in 2010. unshaky. clinton wins again in '96. come back and the republicans have the white house for eight years. there is something in this report that is interesting and bears a discussion on both sides, repeal of the mccain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- u
was president. [laughter] >> we are going to make george bush the president of the republicans now for quite a while, and we will continue that. we really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from 1978 until the summer of 2005, but the party ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, where people would say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person g

of will. simply the will of cheney, bush, and that team. they're going to do it from the first nfc meeting of the bush presidency. it was a matter of how to do it. find me a way to do this. and 9/11 provided that excuse. what's interesting is when you look at the whole chain of events, how many lies there were. this was not a question of them wandering about wmd. it was building a case they knew would would be hollow and figuring once it was successful, once the troops were in there and on the ground, no one would care about the rationale, the just cause, so to speak, for what gets us into iraq. ultimately it shows itself to be a lie that was cynical and one that was preordained and premeditated from the start of the administration. >> you know, i attribute it to something grander than even evidence, my experience with dealing with cheney over the years. brain soup. certain people tend to be doves, hawks, and sadistic about it. cheney strikes me as a guy who wants to rub out his enemies politic politically. any enemy. >> david first. >> what you see in the clip you showed from the showtime
in the land of islam. we listen to the bugle car from the bushes father and son. after the gulf war, the afghan war and the iraq war, are we ready for war with iran and syria? spent billions of rebuilding in iraq, baltimore, detroit, they could use the big money we're spending on countries that take our cash even as they tell us to leave. finally, see how she runs, hillary clinton's message on marriage equality fits her m.o. precisely, a scripted, polished dramatic video is just how she announced last time. looks like she is in. hi, i'm chris matthews, welcome to the show. with us today, the "washington post" david ignatius and kathleen parker. helene cooper and michael crowley. first up, what does barack obama know what we don't know pledging to use american power against iran and getting more deeply involved in syria? the american mood when it comes to using force feels like 1915, the end of vietnam. after that war, reluctance to commit power abroad was called vietnam syndrome. then came desert storm in 1991 and the first george bush told us that the lightning victory there had ba
beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion and there is something rational about standing on the tracks and saying we can't do this any more we have to d
is is the first step. and if packaging is partly the issue, former florida governor jeb bush pointed out, there's not a lot of love for gop policies, either. >> all too often, we're associated with being anti-everything. way too many people believe republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. >> oh, it certainly does. and if that weren't enough, in what's perhaps the gop's biggest challenge, many republicans right now are anti-each other. case in point, keynote speaker an rising star, senator ted cruz. taking on party elder, john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence greze of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wackobirds. if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wackabird, count me a proud wackabird. >> everyone's favorite, rand paul, did win cpac straw poll, by the way. when it wasn't those two wackobirds, it was an angry bird, ann coulter, going after chris christie. >> cpac had to cut back on its speakers this year by about 300 pounds. >> stay classy, mrs. coulter. remember
. on the democratic side, the nominee is expected to be elizabeth colbert bush. her brother uses a fancier pronunciation of the name, known as stephen colbert. on the republican side, the front runner almost as famous as stephen colbert and more famous than his sister but not for a good reason, former governor mark sanford. he has a big national profile, but it is because of his fake hiking trip. mark sanford apologized, finished his term as governor and withdrew from public life for two years. now he is back, trying to win back the public's trust and respect by trying to win back the congressional seat that he once held for three terms. mr. hiking the trail is only one of 16 republicans trying for that seat. the others include the son of media mogul ted turner, his name is teddy, which makes ted turner hard to forget. mark sanford is the frontrunner in the primary, but unless he gets more than 50% of the vote in a field of 16 candidates, then it will be a runoff. he and who comes in second will have a runoff next month. the polls open tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. in south carolina. this is the f
. >> they used language that he was implicitly for citizenship. we have seen this with jeb bush who was for citizenship, in his book, don't know if he wrote it, seemed to not be for citizenship, now he is for citizenship. saw it with marco rubio, his speech at cpac, immigration reform, he doesn't even mention it. we are seeing there's a wing in the republican party when they hear citizenship, they here amnesty. and that's why they're in trouble with this. if you look at the polls, most republicans actually want a comprehensive immigration reform, something like 60%. you see this dance that these figures have to take around the issue. >> sam, it is not like rand paul didn't know. this speech was on his schedule awhile. he knew his day was coming and he was going to be talking about this in front of this audience. it seems easy to keep your story straight. >> you would think so if planning the speech. keep in mind where he came from not even a year or two years ago. in 2011 he cosponsored a bill that outlawed birth right citizenship. children wouldn't be granted citizenship. 2010, he
back to george h.w. bush and jim baker had a very tense relationship with former israeli prime minister shamir over settlements and loan guarantees, so the tension is real but not unprecedented, but you can manage it because of deep cooperation that the two countries have on a variety of issues to both. >> richard wolf, at the time there were people in israel saying what joe klein was saying. >> right. >> it was very controversial thing that bb netanyahu was doing, given that he worked literally in the same office with mitt romney in boston years ago, there was just plenty of suspicion around the whole thing. when president obama arrives there today, i assume there's going to be, there was absolutely none of that from president obama, seemed like all the burden was on netanyahu today to try to make up for what he had done during the campaign. >> right. let's be clear. this is more awkward situation for the israeli prime minister than it is for the american president. the israeli prime minister is the guy that screwed up. and by the way, there are other examples where actually the bush a
down the field. i'm not going make it. i'm a detroit lion. >> especially since we have reggie bush now. we're going to be in good shape. >> yes, that's what we always say. it is always going to be better. but i think seriously though, that the reason that in the past, with columbine, aurora, virginia tech, people forget about it after a few weeks and we move on to whatever else. people are not moving on. they are not moving on after newtown. and i think the reason is, and i can tell by the mail i get, there are too many parent who everyday drive their kids to school, and they open the door and this is what -- i mean, i've got this, more than a dozen times from mothers writing me and saying, i now when they open the door and i see them walk down the sidewalk into the school, i am sick that i have to feel like, is that last time i'm going to see my child. >> yeah. >> and because of that, because sense school went back into session after newtown, since january, millions of moms and dads have been dropping their kids off at school everyday and in the backs of their mind, they know where th
and special assistant to president george w. bush for his eight years in office. tell me first about this photograph right here, as the president and vice president. >> i'd like to call this photo timing is everything. it's a picture of the president and the vice president checking their watches at the same time but it's one of those lucky moments that i captured during the first early parts of the administration, and what i like about this picture is it's a great example of how timely president bush was. he usually started his meetings on time or early, usually early, and so this is really a unique fund moment. and those are the moments that are unscripted, moments that are surprises between all the formal meetings and all the protocol. those are the fund moment for me to capture as the white house photographer. >> how did you become the white house photographer? >> in my case, i was a news photographer. i was staff with "the associated press," and after the election in 2000 you might remember the recount where the election was and decided that evening. well, during the recount i de
. really, back to the fight in new york where so many different people, barbara bush, the daughter of the former president, sports figures, all felt the need to come out and be in support of marriage and ultimately to stand on the right side of history. as those people come out, they lend to this atmosphere of inevitability. that i think has built up and built up and really nobody i think has played more of a role in that than the folks that ted ande and others have represented. >> i had a ski instructor once who said first there's the terror, then the horror, then the accident. i think a lot of people feared this. there was a lot of unclear, unknown fear. once people see it in all these states, they go, i don't feel pain because of this, this isn't bothering me, right? >> not only do they not feel any pain, but the other thing we have on our side is the passage of time. as time goes by, they see that these arguments that the opposition have made have fallen by the wayside. we were talking earlier that you can't find a consistent argument over this. >> that's what i want to get to.
? for nearly half of americans the answer is no. the politics lead, jeb bush seemed to imply that marco rubio may have flip flopped on the pathway to citizenship issue. i'll get the senator to respond to his fellow floridian. and the pop culture lead. he has a new album but it's been six long years since he brought sexy back. is music still justin timberlake's first love? >>> but now for the money lead. still no signs wall street is freaking out over a financial crisis unfolding overseas. stocks ended mixed after government leaders for the mediterranean island of cyprus rejected a controversial bailout plan but even with the markets hanging tough, it brings little comfort to a lot of americans who worry their 401(k) will be chump change by the time they reach their golden years. the lead's erin mcpike is here to tell us about a gloomy new report on the state of retirement savings. >> the recent headlines about the economy as we've talked about have been pretty good but the lingering effect of the great recession is that a lot of americans have had to dip into their savings to get by. and of c
, that it was dysfunctional, a reprisal of liberals and what they have seen as excessive conservativism in the bush era and back and forth, and a dysfunctional agency. so there are other people who are less controversial and as i say would share mr. perez's views. and picking perez is sort of like what they did with chuck hagel. they could have found someone who shared chuck hagel's point ever view who wouldn't have been as controversial as mr. hagel. >> megyn: and the ig's report found mr. perez, that he misled investigators on the new black panther case that it was not intentional, that he should have done his homework, but not that he knowingly lied. that was the ig conclusion. however, they did back up the allegation that there is a racial hostility when it comes to enforces the civil rights laws equally where the defendant in the case is black and the victim in the case is white, that there's a racial hostility within the doj when it comes to those cases and that in fact that exists under mr. perez's civil rights division, as it did prior in the bush administration. is it not less controversial th
remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and tom daschle and dick gephardt were the minority leaders. they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house and they didn't have the senate or the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to "meet the press" outside because they had a brand-new lexus and they had a rusty muffler. that is what he is going to get, the rich guy. this is all you are getting and basically they said there is nothing in it for you if you are middle class or poor. this is only for the rich and we know that is not true. most people bought it and in fact to this day, most republicans i talk to its unbelievable. forget about the truth. is the perception of the truth. it's amazing. terms like gridlock, a came from them. the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality, quantity. >> guest: very good points. look, the democrats attacked the reagan tax cuts and said they would be awful and unfair and of course we got the longest movement in american history and they attacked
, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot parliament, not a single member of parliament voted in favor of that plan. this plan could see as much

narrative about the financial crisis led to the dodd-frank act". .. >> president bush's prediction was, of course, a very bad one, as we know, and needless to say similar and, no doubt, equally bad predictions have been made about the effects of the dodd-frank act which we'll be discussing today. such predictions highlight a predictable cycle in the wake of a financial crisis. there is an inevitable political reaction based on political, not necessarily economic or financial logic, and the political logic goes something like this. i as a politician must do something, what could i possibly do? well, i could always expand and reorganize regulatory bureaucracies even if viewed over time it doesn't work or, indeed, is perverse to do so. a famous be military theorist talked about the fog of war in a financial crisis we have the fog of the crisis followed by the fog of legislation. but it's even worse if the voluminous legislation not only reflects the fog, but is based on a wrong idea, a faulty understanding, or as peter persuasively argues, a flawed ideological narrative. peter wallison is
of president bush's own party who broke ranks. former national security adviser wrote an article call ed "don't attack saddam." there were some republican lawmakers as well. >> we have to remember we have been allies of saddam hussein. we say we know he has certain things, well, we do because we helped provide for them. i mean, we were his ally. >> it's good to -- today is to remember the warnings of u.n. weapons inspector hans blitz. it's a day to acknowledge the admonitions of leaders like general anthony zeni. eric shen who was forced into retirement when he disagreed with the bush cheny strategy. if we are truly remembering what it was like ten years ago today, we can't forget the millions of voices who opposed this war and attempts made to margin liz them. if you were a public figure, it was not a wise time to speak out against the administration. actress jeanne was called an iraqi sympathizer. >> saddam must love you and i'm sure -- >> don't even try and do that -- i'm not a saddam hussein apoll gist -- i don't think he said is that great news. >> michael moore was booed off the stage f
george bush announced there was weapons of mass destruction. that is why this man is sue president bush. >> translator: i believe we were misled as citizens about the war. and we have to do something about that because otherwise, if this is right and we were misled this will happen again and again. >> reporter: san francisco state professor says the iraq war legacy will go down in history as being a bad idea. >> decades ago we had learned the lessens of vietnam. so the question is why did we need to learn many very similar lessons once again? >> reporter: at age 26 sergeant says he knows the war he fought in is controversial but one he will always believe in. >> i think it is going to be a controversial topic for probably the rest of our lives. >> reporter: he is proud of his service but anxious to move on. he is a college student and plans to graduate in the spring. reporting live in san francisco i'm cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. >>> certainly the human toll for the iraq war has been high. some 4,500 military casualties but the war is expensive. the question is how much. it is the r
's experienced the region. fran is in the bush 43 administration. she currently sits on the exterm advisory committee. if we take senator finestein that there's a high probability that these weapons have been used, that it may well take some action. what does that action exactly look like. >> as you say, as chair of the senate intelligence committee, we have to assume she's been briefed and there's a basis for her statement. so we ought to take that pretty seriously. she also went onto say that the u.s. is able to verify that. but they'll be able to do that pretty short order. what that means, anderson, you do what you did in libya, which is only air strike using a coalition. owe're going to need some forces in the ground. there are known to be about four dozen chemical weapon sites. and that underscores the magnitude of this problem. the president presumably will want to put a coalition together. it will take a lot of people to be able to do this effectively. it will require air assets but it will also require ground forces. >> bob, obviously a lot of viewers when they hear the idea that t
. election news. cnn can now project that elizabeth colbert bush, the sister of stephen colbert won the democratic primary of south carolina. there is no projection yet on the gop side. >>> and the pakistani teenager shot in the head by the taliban for promoting education for girls five months ago. she lives in england now. today she went back to school for the first time since the attack. here's how she described her return to the classroom. >> i think it is the happiest moment that i'm going back to my school. today i held my books, my bag, i talked to my friends, i will talk to my teacher. >> an incredible young girl. >>> an update on another recovery to tell you about. interior secretary ken salazar said the statue of liberty will reopen to the public by the fourth of july. lady liberty has been closed since october when it was damaged during super storm sandy. >>> nasa and white house officials told a congressional committee that the nation's asteroid detection program is behind schedule and billions of dollars are needed to keep americans safe from space threats like the meteo
wolf and former adviser to the bush administration and author of "start up nation," dan senor. in washington former representative of california and ceo of the woodrow international senator for scholars, jane harman. good to have you both and all of us together this morning. >>> right to the news. we had the two-year-old conflict in syria is entering a critical stage. both the rsyrian state news agency reports 25 people were killed yesterday. american officials say they are looking into the allegations and white house press secretary jay carney issued a warning to the assad regime. >> we have no evidence to substantiate the charge that the opposition has used chemical weapons. we are deeply skeptical of a regime has lost all credibility and warn the regime against making these kind of charges as any kind of pretext or cover for its use of chemical weapons. >> neither side of the conflict has provided documentation that chemical agents have been used. senator lindsey graham spoke about the allegations telling foreign policy that quote this. we need to come up with a plan to sec
face a runoff. had el is the favorite and has a strong candidate on the democratic side colbert bush, stephen colbert's sister. is that all correct, chris? >> you got it. if you ever didn't think american politics didn't believe in second chances, all you have to do is look at mark sanford. this is a guy when he left in 200, everyone, myself included, said that's it, maybe he'll show up on a reality show, but never coming back into politics. there's a two-week runoff with a guy names curtis bostics while elizabeth colbert bush will raise money, not just because of her famous brother, but she has the capacity to raise money and will run a real campaign, any rpg including one i would say named mark sanford probably has an edge. it's sort of the coastal part of south carolina, including hilton head and charleston. we could be looking at congressman mark sanford again. >>> amazing. here's a jump ball, pun intended, for either of you. the president before he left for the middle east did his brackets with espn's andy katz. his picks? >> kansas is going to win. i tell you that -- >> i knew
republican president since nixon. george is h.w. bush didn't go. on his trip today, he planted a tree. he also signed a guest book. there were plenty of photo ops. this was the big wuchlt see that big box thing that looks like it's on the back of a truck there. the president visiting the israeli air defense system that has a name that sounds like it comes out of a come iblg book. the iron dome. a big iron dome fly swater paid for in part by the united states. and that's where our domestic politics intruded on today's presidenttial trip abroad. we are still trying to wrap our heads around the self inflicted unnecessary designed to be dumb budget cuts. the sequester. and yes, those cuts include the funding for the iron dome. at his press conference today with his israely counter part, the president oohed and aued. >> we're providing more security security assistance and advanced technology to israel than ever before. and that includes more support for the missile defenses like iron dome. we will take steps to ensure that there is no interruption of funding for iron dome. >> taking steps to
to have any kind of civil lawsuits ever again, the dc sniper shoplifted his bush master. if they had a bush master in the show where someone who was a criminal could just pick it up and walk out of the store. people who can't pass background checks, who can't do these things, they can easily go in there, and there have been tons of cases where the gun seller turns their back, and suddenly the guns are gone. that's exactly what this is targeting. >> two crimes, gun violence and shoplifting. >> that's right. they're not civilly liable and the atf has no case whatsoever. >> i was going to say i don't think it's surprising besides the fact that congress passed this. these are people voted in by people like--remember that story a week or two ago where there was that town that wanted to make it mandatory to have a gun. those are the people who voted for them. >> john: exactly. >> i love how when it comes to guns their attitude is we need to make things more lenient. >> john: you know why the american people don't know about this? no one in the democratic party i mean no one, has put up a f
i was referring to found that clinton had a 62% favorability waiting compared to bush at 50% and rubio at 41%. what is in clinton's secret sauce that these guys don't have? >> i think again it isn't just that florida voters don't like jeb bush or marco rubio. many republicans and many moderates like them. the key to hillary clinton is not only that she's so well-known not only is she coming off a successful run as secretary of state has the credentials but she puts together this odd constituencies. it's democrats that sure as heck like her but also women in great numbers across the board and as i said earlier the republican women. i think the secret in the sauce is that hillary clinton at any state, florida in this case, in any state is going to--the republican women are going to look at her vote for her in 30% to 40% and i think she's nearly unstoppable if she chooses to run for the white house. >> michael: that's really an amazing thing, to think that 30% to 40% of republican women would vote for hillary clinton. if you think back to the mid 90s, not a chance that would ha

, it is the anniversary of the iraq war and tell me what president bush's legacy as it pertains to the iraq war. >> well, i was a journalist in 2003 when the iraq war began. i editorialized. i looked at three different occasions we need to be careful about how we go to war. we need to be skeptical of the claims that the administration was making at that time. now i was sitting in a cheap seat. i totally confess that, but there were a lot of people at the time who understood that there was not a lot of credibility. the administrations claims. we know now that the administrations deliberately message whatever evidence we had deliberately lied about many things. i think ultimately his legacy with regard to iraq was that he was largely responsible for taking 4500 lives and changing the lives of 30,000 other americans who were severely wounded in that conflict. i think ultimately history will judge him rather harshly. >> michael: yes, i think it's a sad and rather pathetic legacy when that is your legacy. i wish we had a congress full of john yarmuth. thank you for being here in "the war room." it's great to
at these people--it's pathetic. it's absolutely pathetic. i think of bush and cheney and the lies. i think about how many lives they ruined. they killed a lot of people but they ruined a lot of lives. >> john: negin farsad? >> i think about how we went into a country and we had no plan for nation building, literally no idea what to do with a country after we went in there and destroyed destroyed--systematically destroyed everything about it. that is the thing that justice gets me. >> john: that's because oh george bush didn't know shiite. and hari kondabolu? >> undeclared wars right now we're sending drones out of the country. that's the new way to do it. >> john: mm-hmm. >> i have to say, girls only, i said boys but women in the military. >> john: the female homeless veteran population is disturbing and shocking but you don't hear about it on the news so much because it doesn't feel good. that brings me to tonight's f-bomb. as we approach the ten anniversary of the invasion of iraq it's natural to think about the bush administration, but let's not think about the people who made it possible, th
about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to younger voters is the issue of marriage equality. we had senator rob portman come out for marriage eq
. former florida governor jeb bush used last week's conservative political action conference to foreshadow many of the conclusions contained in today's report. >> we must move beyond the divisive and extraneous issues that currently define the public debate. never again, never again can the republican party simply ride off... write off entire segments of our society because we assume our principles have limited appeal. they have broad appeal. >> ifill: but senator marco rubio told the conservative meeting that the party should not embrace change for its own sake. >> and so our challenge is to create an agenda applying our principles. our principles, they still work. applying our time-tested principles to the challenges of today. >> ifill: yet the biggest hit at last week's conference hailed from outside the national party mainstream. they included kentucky senator rand paul, south carolina governor nicky haley and 2008 vice presidential nominee sarah palin. joining joining us now to talk about how deep the party's fissures go are susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and

george w. bush went on national television to announce the start of the u.s. invasion of iraq. he unleashed the extraordinary force known as shock and awe. remember this? massive air bombardment of saddam hussein's dictatorship. ten years later, saddam is dead, but iraqis are still being killed. the victims of sectarian bloodletting. at least 48 people killed just today in a wave of bombings across that country. here are the stats. the war killed 4,488 americans, a much greater toll for the iraqis. more than 134,000 killed. the war has cost hundreds of billions of dollars. of course, the question that always goes along with that, was it worth it? the latest gallup poll finds that a majority of americans, 53%, say sending u.s. troops to fight in iraq was a mistake. 42% agree with the decision to send our troops. cnn's martin savage was in the front lines of the invasion. he was traveling with the marines and he recently caught up with some of these he met way back when. >> fire in the hole! >> reporter: when you're embedded, you get close to war. >> it's getting hot. let's go! >> r

guided president bush in his second term victory, but in reality karl rove and george bush were architects a policy disasters that led to president bush been mired in 30% approval ratings for much of his second term. those ratings hurt republican and conservative brands and brought us president barack obama, and "obamacare." it is kind of the opposite of a permanent republican majority, you might say. of course, there is a way for us to come together and unite for a common purpose. conservatives will not be bullied into throwing -- in the 2010, president obama and his policies showed us that he was a unifying force for conservatives. we must make obama that again in 2014. friends, president obama in his second inaugural address all but declared war on the conservative movement. it took him four years, but finally the real barack obama, the one we all knew, exposed himself as an unabashedly liberal ideologue all to see. obamaderate myth that portrayed, aided openly by his friends in the mainstream media, that he was a transformational leader who would transcend politics is a comp
